Great Ryokan!
Great stay at a clean modernized Ryokan. Room was very good with private toilet and bath. Service and food was fantastic. This is a very different experience than a western hotel that you must try if you come to Kyoto. Perfect location in Gion. Try the Japanese breakfast at least once! Tatami, futon and kimonos...My 13yo loved it.

Traditional Ryokan experience in central location
It took me a long time to find the right ryokan in Kyoto, as many are very expensive and some don't have private bathrooms. I'm very glad I chose Sakanoue, it has traditional Japanese hospitality, an older Japanese lady dressed in kimono served us breakfast every morning and was very friendly, the room is traditional style but very comfortable, with private bathroom shower and small bathtub, all very spacious. I did not try their Kaiseki dinner but I'm sure it would be great, judging by the high quality of their breakfast. The neighborhood is fantastic, walking distance to all major sights, we took public transportation only to Kinkakuji and Fushimi Inari shrine. Okamoto's kjimono rental Gion store is also just around the corner.

Short of expectation
I have lived in Japan for many years and stayed at traditional Ryokan. The combined experience has made me have very high expectations on service, food, bath etc. Unfortunately Sakanoue falls a bit short. The room was large with and divided in two compartments. The main part is where we had the in-room dinner. The general impression of the room is that it's worn and in need of an overhaul. The wooden bathtub was infested with mould and didn't look very inviting. Trying out the common bath that could be reserved, it turned out to be just too hot to enjoy. Location is great, close to Yasaka-jinja and within walking distance to several other temples and sites.

Excellent ryokan in the most charming neighborhood
The best location in Kyoto, right in the heart of the antique part of town. Charming neighborhood, just like we go back in time. Hotel staff are extremely polite and helpful. Both dinner and breakfast are delicately prepared. Best Japanese ryokan experience.
